MAY BE RENEWED
Berlin, July 17, via London, July 18.
2:30 p. m. The active campaign for
resumption of submarine warfare in
Its previous form has assumed new
importance from an article today by
Eugene Zimmerman, general director
of the Lokal Anzelger, whose views
as past events have shown, usually
reflect the opinions held in govern
Referring to the reasons which
Great Britain gave for abandoning
the Declaration of London, Herr Zim
mermann contemplates the possibili
ty that Great Britain will compel
smaller neutral states to adopt an un
friendly, perhaps a hostile, attitude
towards the central powers, or even
to close their frontiers completely.
He then cites, In heavy type, his
own comment on Germany's accept
ance of the American demands in re
gard to submarine warfare, indicating
that circumstances might arise later
which would make It impossible to ad
here to the restrictions upon the ac
tivity of these craft.
Herr Zimmerman goes on to say
that the political reasons which shap
ed Germany's policy at the time in
cluded the wish to preserve the good
will of neutrals and adds:
"But, If Groat Britain succeeds In
making neutrals passively or active
ly hostile to us, one important rea
son for Germany's decision at that
time would cense to exist. It-makes
no difference whether neutrals yield
to British orders through sympathy
or through fear."
Herr Zimmerman intimates in a
veiled manner being unablo to dis
cuss this phase more freely, that the
submarine power of Germany has
undergone a favorable change since
spring, evidently meaning that either
their numbers or their efficiency have
been increased considerably.
